Disgraced Former Gymnastics Doc Larry Nassar Pays Gangsters for Protection with ‘Sexual Favors’

Inmates say Larry Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics team doctor who was convicted of child sexual abuse, arranged protection behind bars by paying gang members cash and “sexual acts.”

In an interview New York PostInmate Grace Pinson, who served time with Nassar at a federal prison in Florida, said she witnessed Nassar enter his cell with Mexican gang members around June 2021. Pinson said the cell door was closed and the windows covered, indicating the inmate was taking drugs, engaging in sexual activity or both.

“It definitely wasn’t because of drugs,” Pinson says. Claimed.

“Larry Nassar decided that sucking dick was a good way to survive,” said Pinson, a transgender inmate who was sentenced to 20 years in prison in 2005 for sending threatening letters to then-President George W. Bush.

Pinson described Nassar as a “scared church boy” who never left his residence except to visit the chapel.

At the chapel, Pinson spoke with Nassar.

“He hoped he would never need those men,” Pinson said of his conversations with Nassar. “In some ways, what they expected of him was worse than the idea of ​​him being stabbed and killed.”

Pinson said he had direct knowledge of Nassar’s deal with the gang through conversations with gang members and messages he saw on his cellphone detailing the arrangement.

The money appears to have been, at least in large part, for protection, but Pinson believed the sexual acts were for punishment.

“Making Larry Nassar suck my penis in prison is a twisted form of retribution for what he did to women,” Pinson explained.
